Exam Results — 2016
At last the wait is over our students can finally see the results of their hard work.
The students have performed well with 61% of students achieving the key benchmark of C grades and above in both English and maths.
We are proud of the comprehensive nature of our school and our inclusive ethos has ensured that students of all abilities have been challenged to be the best they can be. We are proud of all our students. In particular, it is great to celebrate the success of those students who have worked hard to overcome personal adversity and challenge to achieve fantastic results.
As ever there were some fantastic results from our highest attaining students with Ben Westlake achieving the best results with 5A*s and 4 A grades.
The results our students have achieved are the result of the hard work put in over the course of their time at Severn Vale. It is also only right to acknowledge the hard work of our fabulous staff and the tireless support of our students’ parents. These results could not have been achieved without them both.
As an 11 – 16 we have bid farewell to this group of students who will now move on to a variety of Sixth Forms, Colleges and Apprenticeships. It has been an absolute pleasure working with them over the past five years. Given the great foundation they have achieved at Severn Vale I am confident they will go on to make their mark in the world. We wish them the very best.
Our focus now is to ensure that next year’s results are even better. We will continue to focus on excellent teaching and learning to ensure the best outcomes for all our students.
A full summary of exam results will be available below.
Information on the school's performance can be found on the DfE Performance Tables website
First Entry / Best Entry
One of the biggest changes to the exam results analyses is the “First Entry Rule”. This means that in certain performance tables only the first attempt at a qualification will be included. Schools are still able to use more than one attempt for students and at Severn Vale we do still make use of targeted early entry to enable our students to achieve in key critical examinations.
